    Jace Fry Paternity Leave

    Fry is on paternity leave so Sox recalled Jose Ruiz. He was coming up after September 1 regardless and he’s looked good at times, so I will be interested to see what he can do.

    McCann Extension

    His offensive numbers are eerily similar to James McCann’s 116 WRC, and he’s 2 years older, and he’s making 9 times as much as McCann. Maybe I’m leery cuz he’s the same age as Yonder Alonso and a catcher, but I would not give him a multi-year contract at $18 million per.

    Fangraphs and Luis Robert

    Weird that if they think he’s Brinson, that they don’t give him his 60 Power and slap a 30 Hit on him. But ultimately, who cares? It’s like Keith Law and Sale (or Yoan Moncada) ultimately Longehagen’s opinion won’t matter.

    McCann Extension

    I will say it here too. Why are we obsessed with Grandal again? He’ll be 32 by the end of next year. Catchers don’t have a history of aging well. Unless maybe we’re counting on him going on the Nelson Cruz diet?

    Future White Sox Lineup #GetExcited

    This obsession with Grandal is weird. If we’re going to blow JR’s money let’s spend it on Cole. Grandal is a 32 year old catcher. He’s a major candidate to fall off a cliff in the next 3 years. Why would we want that? Personally, I want Collins to get a month of mlb at bats with his new swing to evaluate where he’s at. If this is real, then you concentrate on a pitcher and RF.
  6. This is a big start for Dylan. If he can just stop giving up early 3 run jacks, he could really be special.
  7. Figures. The missed call on Jay costs us a run.

    McCann Extension

    My view is you split DH. Give Collins a lot of at bats there as well as Eloy. Maybe Moncada once a week to reduce wear and tear. Anything but another Yonder/Adam Dunn type.

    McCann Extension

    Yes, but that bird has flown away. I was a Narvaez fan as well, but now I am looking forward to Collins.

    Tax day 2020

    Yolmer is arb eligible, if he is not the starter, he gone.
  11. Sure. I was just pointing out that Collins could be hella valuable as backup/versatile lefty bat.

    Tax day 2020

    At this point, could they be more obvious? But I could see them staggering the call ups for plausible deniability. So, a month of Ryan Goins as your starting second baseman?

    Tax day 2020

    Why?
  14. Collins getting 40-50 starts behind the plate, 40-50 starts at 1b, and 40-50 starts at DH gives him close to 500 at bats, mostly against right-handed pitching. If he hits, that’s a valuable player. Might not even have to carry three catchers. Right now, McCann is not blocking Collins, Matt Skole is. Well, and what’s left of Welington Castillo.

    The game thread

    Hopefully those at bats all go to Collins in September. It’s important to have some idea of what to expect from him going into the offseason.

    The game thread

    And I ‘d like to add some appreciation for Ray Schalk as well.

    The game thread

    Good thought. Detwiler said that he was the best catcher he ever threw to. It’s possible.
  18. Timmy U

    The game thread

    Detwiler has looked pretty okay over the last several starts. Gives up a lot of solo shots, but I can live with that. Nova and Detwiler, who would have thunk it?

    Renteria goes on pregame anti-analytics rant

    Renteria goes on pregame anti-analytics rant

    Ricky’s Neanderthal approach aside, I was equally disturbed by Cooper’s quote re Gio, “all crap aside, he’s throwing more strikes.” You mean the crap that fixed him? Without Trackman data, his high school pitching coach, and the two neural feedback guys, Lucas would still be following Coop’s advice and getting his brains beat in on two seamers. This is not a good sign for the development of Kopech and Cease.

    Cordell sent down

    I love his play in right, seems like a good guy, but he and Engel are both 27 years old. Not impossible, but unlikely either is going to blossom now, unless they go to the Yankees or Dodgers, then they’ll be all stars.

    Renteria goes on pregame anti-analytics rant

    Really? I will admit to sad and pathetic now, but laughter from the rest of the league does not equal the shorts or Disc Demolition.
  23. Castillo vehemently denies. I think there is more to this story. Personally, I am waiting for more info before passing judgment.

    8/20 Games

    Is Charlotte's lineup with Moncada in it and Collins healthy better than the MLB club? It's pretty close.
